A Woman of Africa - I loved it !!! The literary equivalent of the perfect wave - picks you up, allows you on her journey with no apologies for her origins or destination and leaves you with a satisfied but melancholy feeling, all the better for having known her. MORE PLEASE!!!!!!!

I was surprised by this book. I was not quite sure what to expect, I was half anticipating a traumatic sob story, In fact what I found was a frequently uplifting, often funny and invariably moving story about a woman, who is i some ways universal but as a huge personality that absolutely dominates this book.
I read it in one sitting, I laughed and cried throughout even though I was on a train. I was so engrossed I almost missed my stop. Definitely worth reading.

This book was a delight and a privilage to read. I didn't want it to end!
A fabulous story about hardship I could never imagine, but from a very positive point of view. It really does show the strength of people.
A brilliant read from a fabulous author, who clearly knows his subject.
